Basanti Devi is 31 years old and lives in the Sitalpur village of Dharmnagar VDC in the Bara district of Nepal. She is married with three children. She has a grocery shop that sells goods like rice, pulse, oil and many other things. She has a very good personal reputation within her community, and a good customer base who comes regularly in her grocery shop to buy different types of food items.
Basnati Devi had requested a loan amount of 45000 Nepalese Rupees to buy different types of food items and other non-food items for her grocery shop to meet the ever increasing demand. She hopes that her business will thrive enough to support the needs of her family and to send her children to school.
